OZONE PARK, N.Y.— Woodford Racing and Team D’s High Opinion, who earned four graded stakes placings at NYRA tracks for conditioner Tony Dutrow, will be offered as Hip 68 at the Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale. The daughter of Lemon Drop Kid is listed as a racing or broodmare prospect.

“She’s a trier and a giver,” said Dutrow. “I just felt there was no point in going any further with her, so that’s where it’s at. She’s young and she accomplished a great deal against the best company. She’s in great shape and I hope the breeding business is as kind to her as the racing business was.”

High Opinion, a 5-year-old dark bay mare, broke her maiden at third asking in October 2020 at Belmont Park before finishing second in the Winter Memories in her first stakes appearance one month later. She went on to finish a valiant second to Viadera in the Grade 2 Ballston Spa at Saratoga where she was nosed out at the wire.

After a runner-up effort in the Grade 2 Noble Damsel and third-place finish in the Grade 3 Beaugay at Belmont, High Opinion closed out her career with a stakes victory in the Neshaminy Match Series in June at Parx and a third-place finish in this year’s Ballston Spa.

A $130,000 purchase at the 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale, High Opinion is out of the winning More Than Ready mare More Respect, a full-sister to multiple graded stakes-winner Tammy the Torpedo and a half-sister to multiple graded stakes winner Seek and Destroy.
